THE HASH RUN AT GASPARILLO

 

For those of you without a Garmin Wrist GPS, the run location was  N 10o 20.345 ‘; W 061o 20.734’ at 350 feet above sea level. The total time taken to complete the run was approximately 1 hour and 24 minutes, and the distance covered 3.7 miles. For a fat bastard like me weighing 210 lbs and being 59 years old, I burnt 1,333 calories and promptly drank it back in Caribs after finishing the run. Such is life.

 

The start of the run marked the inaugural run under the tutelage of Hash Master “Zam” or , in the predominantly Muslim neighbourhood where the run was located “O-Zama Bin Hashin”. Oh Zama it has to be said made a brilliant start, pronouncing his edicts from the top of a small mud volcano, ably assisted by his three wives dressed in full Muslim dress to ensure that the local people, would not be offended. The only problem was the outside woman, who kept interrupting, dressed in the skimpiest of blue denim shorts which it was agreed by all was totally inappropriate for such a solemn occasion. (How she escaped without a down down I still do not know).

 

After ringing the changes on the Hash, no alcohol, no pork or ham etc, and Saturday afternoon prayers, it was down to the serious business of the run, which for the weekend before Christmas, when retail therapy gets a grip of most of the ladies on the hash..So all in all, it was well… not badly attended.

 

The hares did a good job in setting the pack off in the right direction over beautiful rolling countryside with much bamboo and sugar fields to cross. The latter having been responsible for bringing so many people to come and live in Trinidad and Tobago almost two centuries ago.

 

This wonderful plant, which is one of the most efficient converters of sunlight into energy is a commodity which Trinidad is about to stop producing, due to changes in the pricing regime in Europe. And despite the temporary economic growth which Trinidad and Tobago is currently enjoying, its demise will have a profound impact on the lives of people in communities such as Gasparillo, many of whom know nothing other than “King  Sugar”.

 

After a few ups and downs we headed into a Teak plantation., and did a slow loop amongst the trees down and up. Back on the ridge, it was left to Nevi to find the train heading down into more unstable country, before we emerged  up on the next ridge in close proximity to a chicken and beef farm. The smell of the latter was reminiscent of something I can’t put my finger on, but lets just say, I was glad when the trail was picked up to run us away from , you guessed …the car park. Eyes left as we headed back out into the country on the one hour mark, the hares ably orchestrating things so that the pack all stayed close together. Congrats boys, you did a great job. The only down side in the new hierarchy was Hash Poofter Pin hard, who warbled on like a neurotic Roy about whether we were on or not. Fortunately, as we finally turned towards home, he went down with cramp in both legs at the bottom of the last decline and we never heard a peek out of him for the remainder of the run.

After heading down the last hill, and up a clear trace we were back on the road again and heading back through the village  to the ON IN and the mud volcano car park, only to be greeted by a couple of elderly hashers sitting in deck chairs sipping Caribs at their leisure..

 

The ON-ON was good and as light fell and darkness arrived Ozama Bin Hashing rose on the back of a pick up to distribute his inaugural assessment of the run and award the down downs. He did well, despite the constant haranguing by ex Hash Master Dookie, who had been called out to Barbados on an SOS.

 

The highlight of the new Hash Masters performance being the down downs for the virgins from Australia and Canada and the inevitable award of Hash Poofter to Nevi, for his over zealous use of a cell phone to find his way to the Hash. Although the Poofter shirt was soaked in therapeutic volcanic mud, Nevi chose to wring the damn thing out before putting it on. He then took his down-down in a very stiff armed sort of way, not helped by the use of a spent elephant toilet toll on his arm at the time. As the final down-down was taken by visitor Kevin (who attended the hash without a prior invitation) we were treated to a streak through the crowd by non other than Nevi, clutching his private parts in a volcanic mud encrusted T shirt.

Welcome back Peter from Canada, we hope you enjoy a wonderful Christmas in Trinidad, it was great to have you back.

ON ON to New Years Eve and Mike Mc Ghee’s Hash in one of Trinidad’ s more distant  locations…...

Zam’s Zanies

Well, not many stones were cast at the new HM on first official duty (Allah O’ Ackbar). The run was set by the Doobie Brothers -1 +2. Apparently one of the brothers was called out on an SOS, the other brother had to explain to me what an SOS was. “Come over here Baby, come Suck On Sandy.” A relatively small turnout for this unique location, being Christmas and all. The Seismic Research Unit advised the hares that activity only occurs when 50 or so vehicles park atop the crater. A nice run followed by a very Gay lime after. All the hash men were hit on by the local “over de hill” homos. Half of the lime did not make it to the bar as they were following Randall, who was heading home (poofter maybe?).

Virgins: Marc,Andrea,Keniesha,Tom and Kasia

Poofter: The HM was overridden on his choice for poofter, the virgins who were caught fornicating on the run, and was forced to give it to Nevie.

Kevin Hale dropped by for a down-down, Haydn was given one as well for being a new grandpa.

 

Quotable Quotes from Pinny: Not to worry, the seismic people say activity is once every 8 years and the last eruption was in 1998>


HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE HASH COMMITTEE!!!
